  •  The 3D printer story is very old news. (3+ / 0-)

    Yippy-skippy I can build a 3D printer and print weapons parts out of plastic. The reality is that even with the Maker movement trying to drive the price down as far as possible, the printers are still $2k a pop. People have been able to build CNC rigs for about the same price for a couple of years that you could make a full automatic M-60 machine gun receivers with. The rest of the parts are easy to get, with no records kept.

    Workers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your shackles. It is by the picket line and direct action that true freedom will be won, not by electing people who promise to screw us less than the other guy.
